I am with you . We have gone though this before, but what must have been roof raising live, can seem long winded in the cool of our private listing space . And Pig's macho raps are an acquired taste . The more they actually "jam" it, I like it more . RBNW, I won't say your nuts for liking Bob's versions better than Ron (...well at lest they are shorter...) ..but ... OK , I like Warren's versions better than the Weir sung versions .
august west's point about Weir's blues forays,are relevant here, also .
As for Dark Star being overrated, I guess you could say the actual song part is not much . But where they could sometimes go with it ! It could delve into some pretty deep waters, more introspective , than the volcanic "Other One" ( I LOVE them both, though the commonness of "OO" , and the baskets full of perfunctory versions , in the latter days , hurts it's a bit ). There is good reason why that "DS " on "Live Dead" is so revered . It is beautiful .
